    After being sat in the garage for a year my 300zx is going for its MOT today at 1800 hrs.
    I took it of the road when a could hear a strange noise from the front of the car and put it done to one of the timing belt pulleys so I purchased a complete kit from mike and had it fitted this week but the noise was a bearing in the air con pump and the alternator so they were reconditioned and thats me ready now for MOT then I can tax online and start Zeding :) wish me luck.

    :Z32: Good Luck

    You didn't drive it up those ramps surely - I find them really dangerous.

    My lads Pug failed it's MoT yesterday so more work for me (rear caliper & track-rod end). I'm getting a bit old for crawling under cars but I must admit it is good exercise. I'll make sure he helps me.

    Thanks guys and I have an extension that sits on the ramp so lowered cars can drive up them I use it for the front wheels.

    I've had them move and usually I'm on my own and worry about damage to the car. I sometimes use them to support the car once I've raised it. Also I stick wooden chocks in the slats once on - so the car can't roll l forward.

    Are those secondary ramps or part of the kit?

    I bought them a few years after I bought the ramps and yes your ramps will move if they are nor secured or propped up against something. In the first pic I have them pushed up against an inch lip thats there as you enter the garage this stops them from sliding.

    Yep a relief but also an independent check on the safety of your car so reassuring.

    Lovely car.
